A frustrating day. I woke up to clouds — and they would not go away. I waited. I napped. I ate. I organized. I cleaned. I looked at the weather forecast for the area and beyond. It looked lousy. No sun for days. So, I gave up and shot what I could. Someday, I’ll be back to shoot things in better light. At least most of it is right off the interstate which will make it a bit easier.
For now, you’ll have to deal with the flat grey colors. Into each life a little clouds have gotta come. This is “Babe” at the Beehive Family Restaurant in Weiser, ID. She surely had neon originally:
A painted over sign in Payette at Details Done Right. I’ve seen freeform stars & animals & arrows like this — but not dollar signs before:
From Caldwell. I have no idea what inspired this steel arch at United Hauling:
From Nampa — a little color on a dreary day:
Over the border into Nevada — where it wasn’t much better weather-wise. A few moments of sun in Wells — but then foiled by a tree for this shot:
Also in Wells — no apparent change for the El Rancho Hotel since the major earthquake in 2008.
The scaffold sign of the bucking horse & cowboy are still there but hard to make out in the grey. Here’s a photo I took of it in 2008:
One last shot from Wells — those grey clouds in the distance are from the direction we came from. Good thing we left when we did!
